These garments, which fail to meet the federal mandatory standards for fabric flammability, could ignite easily and present a serious risk of burn injuries. CPSC, and Five-Y Clothing are not aware of any injuries involving these sweatshirts. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries. The recalled ladies sweatshirts are made of a fleece fabric that closely resembles that of an inside-outside sweatshirt. They are long- sleeved, pullover-style, gray, and 90 percent cotton and 10 percent polyester. A label sewn into the neck of the sweatshirts reads in part, "Route 66 Original Clothing," "MADE IN EL SALVADOR," and "R.N. 94401." Kmart stores nationwide exclusively sold the ladies sweatshirts from June 1999 through March 2000 for about $9. Consumers should immediately stop wearing the sweatshirts and contact Five-Y Clothing at (888) 343-4838 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday to receive a refund. [Source]
